We're starting solid food in earnest. It's a little weird for me -- wait! she's not utterly dependent on me anymore?! - and it's a LOT messier than milk. Heavens, is it messy.

The real problem though, is that Ada doesn't like to eat very much -- milk, cereal, pears, anything. In order to get her to eat, we've been resorting to trickery. Risoris started giving her a spoonful of mushy goo followed by her pacifier. She may not like the goo but she loves her passy (also called bobo) and happily sucks on it, thereby swallowing the food. She ate an entire jar of pears yesterday. Alert the media.

As you can see in the picture below, she's only tolerating this 3rd rate restaurant until she has her own credit card. Then she'll take herself out for something she really likes -- oysters? hot dogs? Uzbek food? macrobiotic? If only we knew!

Uzbek baby menu:
cold tea (black or green)
bread (at least 1 day old)
Anything with sugar!

You must get the book Super Baby Food. Not sure it will help Ada eat more but it will help you master the solid food phase. I found the whole thing utterly confounding until about a month ago.
